It would be better if we had an objective press that tried to report facts.
Instead, we have a MSM that is activist, and wishes to make news, not report it.
here is an article from Breitbart outlining the non-balanced nature of the
media:"Whenever I release an audio recording without visual,
national networks will not play that audio, period. A lot of their producers
tell me that’s because they simply cannot verify the recording. We have an
unreliable [and] non-credible person doing this recording — which every
major media will admit [Omarosa Maginault-Newman] not credible; so why are they
playing audio tapes without video?“This is a crazy story in so
many ways, because the media keeps calling her unreliable,” said
O’Keefe. “The ethics of the media’s behavior [are]
unconscionable and with an extreme double standard"“[CNN
says] you have to take the tape’s word for it, so it’ll be very
interesting going into the fall when we release our videos, to screenshot all
these responses and use it against them.”“If I did [what
Manigault-Newsman did], I’d be in jail,” remarked O’Keefe.
“If I recorded in the Situation Room, I would be sitting in federal
Re: "When it's the president vs. the press, America loses"Actually, when Republicans win, America loses. And of course, Republican
politicians hate the press. Why? Because the legitimate press strives to tell
the truth, and the truth rarely coincides with what Republican politicians tell
us.Hey Patriot -Re: " . . . the coverage for
president Trump from CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBC, ABC , the NY Times and Washington
Post has been 97% negative. Yes 97% negative! Incredible."Actually, that's very credible. What is not credible is the lying Donald
J Trump and his mendacious administration.I'm amazed the press
can truthfully say anything good about Trump even 3% of the time! Do you want
the press to lie? For the press to say more positive things about Trump, the
press would have to lie.Re: "So how was Obama covered by these
same media cites? 90% positive. A complete flip."EXACTLY.
That's because Obama was a LEGITIMATE POTUS. Trump, on the other hand, is
Putin's puppet, and his policies help Russia by weakening America. Obama is
NOT even remotely like Trump. Obama is a REAL patriot, not a pretend patriot.
Hence, the differing press coverage.. . . See the difference now?
The New York Times is owned by Hillary supporter and Mexican Billionaire Carlos
Slim. How can anyone expect it to be objective when it comes to Trump? This is just one example of the Mexican meddling in our electoral
process. Why should the press be trusted when they are advocating for Mexico
over the United States?
If the Russian meddling does include sowing the seeds of discord, as Matheson
suggests, should we not wonder how far this goes? Are they egging us on in our
debates on race, guns, flags, and so forth? Perhaps the saying that,
"When life hands you lemons, make lemonade," has an application. These
are times when we can reflect on our policies and our actions -- whether we
speak of guns or immigration or whatever. If Russia is egging on the debates,
then let us use that momentum to get us to think about what we are doing wrong,
and how we should change. Instead of letting the Russians divide us, it would be
wonderful if we united in a determination to solve our problems. We can come out
a better nation if we determine to right our wrongs.
At the end of his column, Matheson suggests that if there is one area Russia
meddling is succeeding, it is in sowing discord. Do we suppose that if the
Russians are using the social media during the campaign season, they turn off
their efforts as soon as the election is over? No, I think their efforts
continue. And, divide and conquer might be much of what they do. We might wonder
whether we are but dupes of the Russians when we hate certain politicians.
When it's the current president, America loses.
Some commenters are claiming that the press is reporting 97% negative stories on
Trump. With a president who is racist (Charlottetown), narcissistic
(bragging about inauguration turnout), bullying (see every other tweet), and
Russia loving (perhaps comprised), I don't think that's bias. Trump
has just proven to only do things right 3% of the time.What some
call media bias, most call accurate reporting on an incompetent politician.
A free press also assumes a fair press. An unbiased press. A press corp that
is made up JOURNALISTS. In the past the profession expelled these
pretend-journalists - like Dan Rather. Today the profession protects them,
covers for them, even lauds them - like this Acosta character. Since we no longer have journalists (objective by definition), there is no
such thing as an unbiased press. Therefore it matters not whether they are
“free” or respected. Our press today resembles that of
Russia. Controlled and dominated by one dogma and biased against all others.
What is the difference between Russia’s Communist Agenda controlling the
press and America’s Liberal Agenda doing the same? Neither country has a
truly “free press”.
Let's sum up the pro-Trump position: Fake news = news I don't like.
Journalists pointing out lies and corruption are "fake news" vendors
because they are telling me something I don't want to hear.
Wrong. What you refer to as the "press" is unrecognizable
@one old man,I will oblige you with a headline (currently available
on this website) in particular that is a perfect example of a "false
story.""In a change, Trump says meeting's purpose was
Clinton info"The headline itself is fake and everything in the
article is also fake. There is not a "change" in Trump's story on
the meeting of his son with a Russian Lawyer. He admitted that that meeting
occurred well over a year ago; and at that time said that the purpose for the
meeting was dirt digging on Clinton; but when that turned out to be a bait; they
turned to talk policy over adoptions.Further, Trump said he was
unaware of the meeting at that time, but certainly learned about it later. So,
his story hasn't changed at all... only the fake media's claims that
his recent tweet about the meeting was a change in his story.It is
as if they presume that all Americans have a super short memory and they forgot
that the president had already clarified that meeting well over a year ago.That is a perfect example of fake stories in the media, in this case
they cherry pick Trump's statements from a long time ago and keep harping
on old news yet claiming it is new news.
Hey Scrappy do -Re: “ . . . every Republican president has to
deal with the major press outlets (who try to maintain that they are unbiased
and don't lean left... ha ha).... well their bias led directly to the
creation of conservative talk radio and Fox.”WrongThe destruction of the Fairness Doctrine by the Reagan administration is what
led to the creation of conservative talk radio and Fox “News.” If
the Fairness Doctrine were still in effect, neither conservative talk radio nor
Fox “News” would exist.The Fairness Doctrine shot down
lies before they could gain momentum and sway the public.Stifling
the truth is what led to conservative talk radio and Fox "News.” A
culture of lying now forms the backbone of the GOP. The most prolific liar in
the world now leads the GOP party by acclamation. Why do you think that is?Yesterday, Trump’s very first supporter in Congress was charged
with insider trading. Trump’s campaign manager is in jail and will soon be
in prison for his dirty dealings with America’s Russian enemies.
Meanwhile, Trump’s deputy campaign manager is begging for leniency.Thanks to Reagan and 30 years of lies, a culture of dishonesty now
dominates the GOP.
I am sorry Boyd but I have to disagree with many of your comments.When this president won this election he did so without the mandate of the
voters. He lost by 3 million votes to his opponent. Yet he governs in such way
as to further aggravate the situation. His bombastic ridiculing and degrading
manner in which he verbally treats others is totally unbecoming and should be
criticized.Time and time again he fails in taking advantage of
opportunities to bring people together. He does not seem to recognize that he
rules all the people of this country and not just his minority base of
supporters. The press should shame the President.
The press is its own worst enemy. Many are rude, abusive, and biased. Jim Acosta
is a political agitator, not a journalist. Their political biases are
disgusting. Often their questions are irrelevant except to embarrass the
President. 90% of the press is hostile and act as agents of the Democrat party.
Moreover, they are not trustworthy and people are stuck trying to figure out if
the news is fake or not. Who wants to wade through journalistic pieces laden
Matheson missed the boat on this. This fight is all on Trump. It is his fault.
Matheson misrepresents Acosta, who is only asking the Trump Administration to
come out and say that the media is not the enemy of the people and of the
nation. They refuse. Trump is the one who made the claim about the media. And
he determined to pick out CNN, and Acosta as the guy assigned to the White
House, to wage his campaign. Ironically, CNN is in the middle, neither left nor
right. Acosta is right to push back, so when Matheson says Acosta is consumed
with contempt for Trump, I take offense. And poor Sarah Sanders blaming the
media for the comments of a comedian at a dinner where everyone takes shots is
the epitome of victimhood. That is not a reason to label the media as the enemy
of the people. It's not a reason to constantly go after CNN as part of
Trump's manipulative games. Sanders dishes it out, but won't take
even legitimate criticism. Matheson misses the real problem, but perhaps
it's because he is an ardent Trump guy who has to make a moral equivalency
"Sarah Sanders then laid out that Acosta, and most of the reporters in the
room, had sat smugly at the Correspondence Dinner while a comedian attacked
Sander’s appearance"Which is an outright lie. No one
attacked her appearance. Watch the video. Michelle Wolf made fun of the way she
always lies to the press and the American people. The line was “She burns
facts and she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye.” That is NOT
'attacking her appearance', its attacking the way she CONSTANTLY lies.
But then facts dont matter to trump supporters anyway.
The press should have blacked out the Helsinki press conference. Why should
anyone know about matters that are bound to be uniformly criticized?
I wonder if the 97% negative figure includes quoting Trump's tweets
verbatim. That could create quite a negative impression all by itself.
Life is not supposed to be questionless. Society cannot function without
questions. A society without questions is inhabited by robots. I sure hope we
are not striving to become a non-free thinking society. An elected and then
sitting POTUS, a GOP or DNC member is supposed to be able to face the press and
answer questions whether he or she feels like the press is either biased or
unbiased because he or she is the official elected Spokesperson for the Country.
"It should be noted that while President Trump’s railing against the
press is unbecoming and unnerving, it is far from unprecedented. "In fact President Trump's blanket labeling of the press as "enemies
of the people" is unprecedented. Your statement reflects a
growing accommodation of Trump at your paper and I don't know what to make
"While presidents and the press aren’t likely to agree on what
balanced, principled and fair reporting is, they should agree on the importance
of the difficult dance they do together and the need for mutual respect."This starts out strong, but then quickly becomes bogged down in
nonsensical equivocating. Yes, the relationship between White House and the
press is often turbulent, but it has never reached "enemy of the people"
rhetoric, a phrase so fraught with historical meaning that it is shocking that
it is being freely bandied about in 21st century America.This
administration lies. It does so repeatedly. The press has exposed these lies.
If the coverage is so negative, it is because of what this White House does.
Except on Fox, which is all but an explicit propaganda arm of the administration
with the president live-tweeting its shows and promoting its anchors'
books.And the line that Trump is only against "fake news"?
He generates fake news daily with mendacity and gaslighting. It is clear that
fake news is news which he doesn't like, and when a significant percentage
of his followers think he should be empowered to shut down fake news, the DN
should call that out.
Unbiased news reporting is a very high standard. I would be content to have
believable news again. The news industry has become like infotainment -
incapable of creating anything, biased or not, that will affect the incumbent
president. They have tons of evidence yet cannot seem to land a knock-out
punch, to use a sports analogy. Reporters must develop more credibility for the
whole of the United States to believe them. This simply is not going to happen
with compressed, sensationalized stories sandwiched between glitzy car ads.
Someone must take the time and effort (and risk) to uncover the truth. Of
course, journalists are only as good as their editors, who must answer to their
shareholders and ad managers - whoever is doing the underwriting. So in a way,
I can see President Trump's point, though not excusing him.
There were elections yesterday. I couldn't tell from the headlines who
won. I went to Trump's twitter account to see who he congratulated. Now,
people claim Trump lies? To whom does Trump lie? To the Washington Post, their
fact check is so wrong that it has its own fact check on Youtube now. There is
a lot of my guy didn't win so I'm going to through a tantrum with the
press. Go ahead, the #walkaway movement is gaining momentum.
Free Speach and freedom of the press means we have to put up with the negativity
and false reporting. When ever a Republican is president, the bias of the press
is on display. When a Democrat is president, they give the President a free pass
since they support almost everything being done. With President Trump it is even
worse because of the hate they have for him, combined with the fact he fights
back at every turn. The press is not used to dealing with a President who fights
back, who unafraid, and has a support block that cheers him on.
It's not the presses fault that the president is a pathological liar, he lies about big things, he lies about small things, he lies
about personal matters, he lies about political matters,he lies
about international things, he lies about the lie he told the day
before.If you continue to trust such a person, than that is a choice
to ignore reality, this is not bias, it's a fact. When donald tries to
redefine definitions it's to your disadvantage to follow him.It's not about the press, it about the excuse made for a person not fit
wazzup asks : "BTW, does freedom of the press permit false stories to be
printed?"I'd like to ask wazzup to provide a list of false
stories that have been printed.
Yes, but never in our history have we had a "president" like this one
who is an avowed enemy of truth.
Boyd Matheson, you have this backwards. It should be "When it's the
press vs. the President, America loses". President Trump was elected by
people of America. But the liberal left-wing media has been overwhelming
negative regarding this president 97% of the time. The media is obviously
anti-Trump and obviously opposed to the choice made by the people of America who
elected him. When the press opposes the president elected by the people -
I find much to agree with in this opinion piece. While I respect the presidency
immensely, I have no respect for the current holder of this office. He has not
earned it. On the contrary, he has done nothing but denigrate the office. I
cannot defend the indefensible and Trump doesn't deserve such a defense.
Until he behaves better, the media will continue to report his actions and that
won't be good for Trump.
“Enemy of the people” are just words that should really
mean“LIES are the enemy of the people.”Whoever tries to blind the
American people with lies, half truths and leaving information out is the enemy
of the people. This applies to News shows, journalists, politicians, presidents,
talk show hosts and people who repeat info without verification. etc It is
poison coming from both sides. It is rampant. It is power and money based. It is
sickening. It is seen even in the comments submitted here. It has always
existed and will always exist until someday truth will prevail
A little advise to the media, don't start a fight and expect your victim or
victims not to fight back. The liberal left-wing media hates President Trump
and can't hide it no matter how hard they try to deny it. Recently,
Facebook, YouTube, and Google launched an all out war on conservatives and their
websites by shutting them down and justify their actions by say they have to do
it to save democracy. The liberal left-wing media has started the war - they
shouldn't be surprised to hear the other side call them out as enemies.
Too many of the press have gotten away from true investigative reporting and
reporting of facts, whichever party or whatever individual these facts may
support. You only have to listen to them for 5 minutes to know who they
personally pushing or supporting as a party, candidate or policy view. Part of
the challenge as well is you have to look at who owns these news outlets as they
likely have to push the views of their owners as well in many cases. There are many reporters that give their best efforts and talents to their
professions and do outstanding reporting. Some even give their lives to report
the truth. Or, are living in very dangerous circumstances to bring us news of
what is going on in the world. They should be honored and have our full support.
This is the first president I am aware of other than Nixon that
constantly hammers at the press day and night and pushes the message of the
press being the enemy of the people. It is tragic. It sounds like something
Putin, Kim, Mugabe, and many other dictators would say. It is not what you
expect to hear from the president of the U.S. - a country that supports the free
press as part of our democracy and Constitution.
Say what you will but Obama sat down with Bill O'Reilly -- twice -- before
Fox's Super Bowl broadcasts. You know, that conservative pundit who left
Fox News in disgrace.When Trump sits down with Anderson Cooper or
Rachel Maddow, even on a week night, . . . oh wait, that will stand as much of
a chance happening as Trump appearing on "American Ninja Warriors". Actually, less of a chance.
Trump lies a lot but the media is the problem?Trump stated the
unemployment rate was 20 percent during his campaign but now he boast of the the
low unemployment.Trump stated the tax cuts will spur economic enough
to erase the deficit but it is a lie.I could go on.
The majority of the opinions expressed here show that there are many Americans
capable of sifting through the crap that is delivered across the media. The
media ought to take note, instead of treating many Americans as if they can be
deluded with biased reporting. When Trump says 'fake news', he
basically is only stating what a majority of Americans know as 'fake'.
They are very patient with the news media, giving them every bit of space to
report without bias, but when they don't, common sense kicks in for the
readers and they do some thinking to reach their own conclusions, conclusions
that are increasingly at odds with the mainstream media. Get it right, without
the contempt and your own determination to tell us how to think and guess what?
We might start believing you are capable of doing your job.
This comes off sounding like Trump's "there were good people on both
sides" comment after Charlottesviile. Jim Acosta bad! Sara Huckabee Sanders
victim! If the writer (a media member himself) cannot provide one example of Jim
Acosta being a bad journalist, then maybe he should not have been singled
out.Sam Donaldson asked much more aggressive questions than Jim
Acosta ever will and he caused several presidents a great deal of grief. No one
ever said Sam Donaldson was a bad journalist. He was, in fact, a Republican, the
son of a New Mexico rancher. When Trump denigrates journalists of
color, Jim Acosta, April Ryan, Don Lemon, people should be able to do the math.
Someone with an Hispanic surname really gets under Trump's skin. Like
that's a big surprise.When Assad talks about "fake
news" -- as he did recently -- it's easy to see autocrats and dictators
glomming onto that term to further suppress their people. 43% of Republicans in
a recent poll were in favor of Trump shutting down the media. That's the
slope we are sliding down and it's very alarming.
I’m tough. Hurt away Mr. President.
"I swore an oath - to the death - to "support and protect the
Constitution against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic". "...and THAT
my friends is why I fight Donald Trump "Funny, Trump is the
constitutionally elected President, the commander and chief of the nation. Here
is the oath that you took. "I, (state name of enlistee), do
solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of
the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear
true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will OBEY THE ORDERS OF THE
PRESIDENT of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me,
according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me
God.""...and THAT my friends is why I fight ... all
Republicans each and everyday! " And fight against the constitution each
and every day. Do you hate democracy that much?
The premise of the headline is flawed. The headline should read, "When
It's The Press vs The President, America Loses". The press is not some
monolith, but the MSM is unitedly anti-Trump, pro-socialist democrat. They
cannot be trusted and in all honesty, must be refuted at every turn.
wazzup - "...they were lapdogs for Obama. In fact, during one press
briefing, the media chanted Obama, Obama."Why do you lie???
America long ago lost; because "The Press" long ago abandoned their
mandates... instead of balanced reporting of fact and keeping our government in
check; they have aligned themselves (and I mean ALL the Press even this website)
to partisan politics; and every single report is biased; and when reporting on
the government itself; even more biased.The current President has
only honed in on the people's distrust of the press to garner votes... so
our current president's attack on the press is nothing more than a symptom
of the larger problem, the press's utter abandonment of principled and
unbiased reporting of factual information.
The press ceased to exist when they decided to “build narratives”
for advocacy and opinion over unbiased truth. Trump lit the dumpster fire but
the “press” provided the trash.
When members of the media held their women’s march rally and had Madonna
make threats on the White House and was cheered, they are enemies of the people.
When Peter Fonda said that Trumps son should be locked up in a cage with
pedophiles is yet another example or when Bill Maher and his cronies say that
they hope that the economy implodes in order to hurt Trumps presidency, they are
enemies of the people. No one in the media calls out their own for making these
statements which make them not only an enemy but a threat.
The Jim Acosta fake news at the political rally. Jim is as inartistic as the
president. An honest review of the tapes notes Jim was not reporting on the
rally as much as to goad the people at the rally. He took a position above the
people to be on a visual line to the podium. A prominent position. One photo
showed him facing the rally goers, not addressing his cameras but goading the
crowd.Then there is the extremist language used by his cohorts in the press
claiming his life was being threatened, his statement of not being in America.
No Jim Acosta manufactured the situation at the rally. The next
briefing he went after Ms. Sander's to goad her into making his statement.
He will do what ever he can to make a false news out of any event so he can look
"The press has a purpose to report and shine a light, free from bias and
agenda, with transparency and accountability."This simply does
not happen. Pres. Trump is right when he called out the left-leaning press as
fake news. I would add just one thing: propaganda mongers.
"The president's contempt for media is well established and is
reciprocated by many in the national media."The assumption here
is that Trump had contempt first. Looking back at the campaign, I do not think
that is so.Also, I am less concerned about "foreign
influence" than I am the domestic wrongs they uncovered:- The
Clintons, their foundation, and "Pay-for-play" contributions from
foreign governments while she was Secretary of State.- The Democratice
Party undermining Bernie in favor of the Clinton Campaign.- Bill Clinton
meeting with the Attorney General to get her to back off investigating Hillary
and her MANY illegal activities. (and Bill and Hillary were likely backed up by
Obama in pressuring the AG. If not, then just how much power do the Clintons
wield even without her being elected? That is a scary thought.)This
doesn't include the fact that Hillary and Obama gave ISIS weapons in Libya
that eventually made it to Syria.Trump is seriouisly flawed -- and
better for America than Hillary.
Obama and Clinton only had to deal with Fox and talk radioevery
Republican president has to deal with the major press outlets (who try to
maintain that they are unbiased and don't lean left... ha ha).... well
their bias led directly to the creation of conservative talk radio and Fox.Americans are not dumb, they know that CNN, MSNBC, & NBC are way
left of center.. The others, still left but not so much... but add in the fact
that they cannot stand Trump and that he won't back down or remain silent
(especially like George W Bush) and you can see why there is a war going on here
I am an independent and really do not care for Trump as a person. But I am, as
one who use to watch and appreciate the news on CNN, completely dumbfounded at
the overtly biased and negative news coverage from the liberal media against
Trump, especially CNN. Things have changed drastically in this country since the
time Obama arrived in office. There is no longer any objective journalism from
the mainstream media. That's just a fact. I do not like Trump as a
"person," but you do have to admit, whether for him or against him,
whether liberal or conservative, that the "things" he has done so far
are, for the most part, the very things he said he would do. I do not care for
his weird, narcissistic personality, but I do agree with and support many of the
things he has done so far: lower taxes, trade, foreign policy, SCOTUS picks,
booming economy, lowest black and Hispanic unemployment ever (and no...not
crumbs for jobs, but real jobs...unlike BHO), and the list goes on. I always
have considered voting for both liberals and conservatives, but DEMS have move
so far left (no borders, no ICE, free everything, identity politics, hate Trump,
etc.) that I feel a complete disassociation w them
"The press has a purpose to report and shine a light, free from bias and
agenda, with transparency and accountability. "That's right
"free from bias and agenda". When CNN, MSNBC, NBC, ABC, NYT, etc is 95%+
negative coverage of Trump,....How can anyone think these MSM are not bias with
What would "positive coverage" of Trump look like? Should the
press decline to report instances when the President:-Lies to us?-Claims victory over NoK when there is no such victory?-Claims the
Russians do not interfere with our elections when everyone knows that they
do?-Claims he knows nothing about payoffs to various "female
friends," when the evidence clearly indicates otherwise?-Promises to
deliver the world's best healthcare and delivers nothing?-Claims
credit for a swell in the economy that was well underway long before he came to
power? Would Trump supporters feel better if the press covered none of
"For the president to call the press the enemy of the people is actually an
attack on the American people"But that's not what the President
said.He said "The FAKE NEWS media..." Not all news is fake
news. I didn't take him to mean the entire free press. People! Donald Trump
is just not that dumb.And look here: A quick google search - a CBS
news story from August 2nd by Kathryn Watson, a full week ago: "President
Trump on Thursday clarified that not all members of the media are the "enemy
of the people," just the "FAKE NEWS, which is a large percentage of the
media."A large percentage? Maybe it is. Because even in this DN
opinion, the President gets misquoted.
Under Trump they are over zealous watchdogs to the point of writing false
stories vs. they were lapdogs for Obama. In fact, during one press briefing,
the media chanted Obama, Obama. So it's about time someone fought back
against the biased media who are on the same team as Democrats. Glad Trump is
calling them out.BTW, does freedom of the press permit false stories
to be printed?
I'm with you except on the Acosta thing. I really don't think he has
been contemptuous--he has, however, been targeted by Mr. Trump and has been
treated poorly because he spoke up. He was treated very badly at a recent
rally--directly because the President egged the crowd on and created a dangerous
situation.I don't like what what said about Ms. Sanders;
however, it should not have been that difficult for her to say the words
"The Press is not the enemy of the people", but somehow it was. There is
a huge difference between tasteless jokes at a correspondence dinner and
actually being an enemy of the people.The First Freedoms are just
too important for dangerous rhetoric like "enemy of the people". If you
can't see that, I don't think you understand America.
It is the job of the press to be a watchdog - not a cheerleader - for the people
in power. JFK was tight with the Washington media, and that probably was not a
good thing in the middle of the Cold War.
I sworn and oath - to the death - to "support and protect the Constitution
against ALL enemies, foreign and domestic".Not an oath of
loyalty to a man, like the Nazis did.Last time I read it, "Freedom of the Press" was inscribed in the Constitution and Donald
Trump is attacking it....and THAT my friends is why I fight Donald
Trump [anyone supporting and defending him -- aka, all Republicans] each and
According to surveys and actual data collected, the coverage for president Trump
from CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBC, ABC , the NY Times and Washington Post has been 97%
negative. Yes 97% negative! Incredible. Also all the incredible economic news
such as a GDP of 4.1% or record low unemployment or historic tax cuts for the
middle class and all the great news about our North Korean hostages getting
released or other Trump successes get zero coverage on these media cites. So
how was Obama covered by these same media cites? 90% positive. A complete flip.
So with a grossly bias and abusive media what is the Trump team supposed to
do? Lay down? I lay the blame 100% at the media. These media sites aren't
news anymore -- they are advocates for far left ideology and nothing more. Fox
News is #1 in the country for cable and network news and there is a reason for
that rating -- people trust Fox. Yes Fox opinion hours are conservative but Fox
also has plenty of liberals on Fox and Friends and other shows. There is a mix.
There are zero conservatives on these other media sites and thus zero balance.
People aren't stupid.
